When most people think of Doe Deere, they think about her cosmetics company, Lime Crime. However, anyone that spends just a few moments listening to what she has to say about life in general will also gain a quick understanding that she is trying to get a message across to anyone who is willing to listen. She wants everyone to know who you they truly are, even at their deepest core. She is using her influence that she has gained through Lime Crime as an avenue to help people understand that by getting to know themselves, they can live much happier and more fulfilling lives than they ever thought possible
Deere was recently interviewed and throughout the course of that interview, she revealed that the only way she has managed to achieve so many goals was because she has always been true to herself. She also admits that there was a very brief time when she was growing up that she tried hard to keep her own thoughts and feelings a secret so she could conform to what was then considered normal by virtually everyone else. The point she is trying to get across is that while she was trying so hard to conform, she wasn’t as happy as she could have been. She didn’t enjoy a lot of things because she was hiding her true personality.
Thankfully, she eventually decided that she would rather be true to herself than live a lie in order to make other people happy. She says that she experienced the most amazing thing when she started being true to her own personality. People seemed to come from every direction in order to comment on how they too had been trying to hide who they really were so other people would be happy. For Deere, her personality is expressed through fashion and cosmetics in a way that makes her stand out from the crowd. She finally decided that she was never meant to conform and then instead, she should stand out boldly and make it a point to be noticed.
What can everyone else take away from this? Regardless of what you do or who you are, it is imperative that you remain true to yourself in everything. You might be just as interested in unique fashion as Deere herself, or your interests might lie somewhere else. Regardless of what makes you who you are, it is imperative that you remain true to that even when you think no one else will understand. That is essentially what she has based her entire company on and it is the message that she continues to put out there for everyone else to hear, if only they are willing to listen. This is something that almost every person could benefit from in one capacity or another.
